from the book...
Sam can't believe it when his father leaves him and his mom to marry another woman - and a white woman, at that. The betrayal cuts deep - Sam and his dad were tight, and Sam never imagined that someone he was close to could hurt him so badly. Now who can he turn to, who can he trust? Even God seems to have ditched him.
Ishmael is his father's only son, and heir. But when his father is visited by mysterious strangers who claim that his wife, Sarah, will finally give birth to a legitimate son, Ishmael is worried. And when baby Isaac arrives, Ishmael becomes isolated from his father. Could Ishmael's God now betray him in favour of this new son?
But even as these boys struggle with their own fathers, it is their Father in heaven who sees them through.
